Avogadro's Constant

What does Avogadro's constant mean/measure? When do we need to use it?

Avogadro's constant tells us that there is 6.022 x 10^23 molecules or atoms in a mole. If we ever have grams or moles of an element, we can use Avogadro's constant to determine the number of molecules or atoms.

Avogadro’s constant is derived by finding the exact number of atoms in exactly 12 grams of carbon-12. Avogadro’s number is used to describe the number of objects per mole. These objects can be atoms, molecules, or ions. You should use Avogadro’s number when determining the number of these objects, or when you are given the amount of objects and need to convert to moles.

Avogadro's # is basically just 1 mole
